LAU­RIE LEE TRAIL

Evergreen - - Hit Parade -

Au­thor and poet, Lau­rie Lee, was brought up in Slad near Stroud, and the new Lau­rie Lee Trail passes just a stone’s throw from This Eng­land’s Me­mo­rial Wood. Open to visi­tors you can find it on OS Lan­dranger map 162, Glouces­ter and For­est of Dean, grid ref­er­ence 875083. When he was grow­ing up, the area was home to sev­eral cider- or­chards, caus­ing Lau­rie to pen this poem en­ti­tled “Ap­ples”.
